March is dedicated as National Nutrition Month and Save Your Vision Month, and as an organization, EyePromise® is heavily focused on the importance of nutrition and proactive eye care. Catching eye health concerns and beginning care early always leads to better patient outcomes. Nutrition is an important piece of most if not all early care plans, but how early can eye care professionals begin nutritional intervention? With EyePromise Screen Shield™ Teen, the answer is as young as 4 years old.
Introducing Screen Shield Teen
EyePromise worked with our Scientific Advisory board of ODs and MDs to create Screen Shield Teen. This daily, chewable eye health nutraceutical is formulated for children ages 4 to 17 and designed to complement a daily multi-vitamin. Screen Shield Teen is:
- Made with high-quality, all-natural zeaxanthin (not synthetic)
- Fruit punch flavored
- GMO free
- Gluten free
- The first children’s screen time eye health nutraceutical available in the doctor channel
Why Screen Shield Teen?
Today’s youth spend copious amounts of time staring at digital screens. Starting as young as 8 months old, screen time only increases with age. This increased screen time has led to 70% of children experiencing symptoms like tired eyes, headaches, and eye strain. With 69% of kids unlikely to change their screen time usage, parents worry about the lasting affects digital devices might have on their children. Screen Shield Teen gives eye care professionals a solution for these concerns.
